Braves trade longtime fans to Oakland
In an unprecedented move, the Atlanta Braves have traded away several longtime supporters for six minor league fans of the Oakland Athletics. Braves management stated, “We are attempting to build something special in 2017 and decided that a younger fan base is the way to go. We’re excited about the addition of these young minor league fans that will, in our opinion, blossom into fantastic big league supporters of the Atlanta Braves. We would like to thank the Braves fans we traded to Oakland for their years of support and wish them well in the future.” As part of the package, the A’s will also receive from Atlanta an elderly beer vendor and a senior female fan to be named later.
